Meghan Markle's friend Priyanka Chopra appeared to 'ignore' Prince William and Kate Middleton as they were clapped into the Royal Box at Wimbledon.

In a newly emerged clip, the actress, 38, opted to fiddle with her scarf as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 39, took their seats to rapturous applause from the crowd ahead of the Women's Singles Final on Saturday. 

Several royal watchers suggested it was a snub after the Duchess of Sussex, 39, made remarks about Kate during her Oprah Winfrey interview.

Meghan claimed her sister-in-law made her cry and 'hurt her feelings' during a discussion about flower girl dresses ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry - after it was previously suggested it was the other way round.

Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra have been friends since 2016 after meeting at an ELLE Women in Television dinner

She also claimed 'conversations' were had with a member of the Royal Family about the colour of Meghan and Harry's son Archie's skin. 

It's possible Priyanka didn't see the Cambridges enter the Royal Box, or that she wasn't aware of the etiquette to applaud, however several royal fans suggested her abstaining from clapping was intentional. 

Remarking on her reaction, one said: 'The way Priyanka did not even look in their direction is enough for me.'

Another tweeted: 'I'm actually in disbelief about such a lack of manners and upbringing. The Americans sitting in the vicinity to Kate and William did NOT clap nor acknowledge their entry. Two past tennis stars with their wives, King and Navratilova, and a bestie of Meghan's, Priyanka Chopra.' 

One added: 'She totally ignored them. I would do the same if my friend was mistreated', while one remarked: 'I would ignore them as well.'

Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra have been friends since January 2016 after meeting at an ELLE Women in Television dinner. 

Afterwards Meghan told Press Trust of India she was thrilled when Chopra admired her work, adding: 'You know when you meet someone and you just click? It was just an easy, natural progression. 

'We've managed to keep in touch via email and text, and try to see each other whenever we're both in the same town.'

The Indian actress was a guest at her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018, however Meghan didn't attend her wedding to Nick Jonas that December and Priyanka was subsequently absent from Meghan's baby shower, prompting rumours of a feud. 

Priyanka however laughed off these claims, insisting it was simply 'not true'.

Priyanka has been a vocal champion of Meghan since they became close; when the Duchess was named one of Time's Most Influential People of 2018, she wrote a piece detailing her special qualities.

In the article, she predicted that Meghan 'will be a princess for the people' and branded her a 'relatable young woman with her heart and mind in the right place'.

A source previously told E! News that Meghan confides in Priyanka about the 'adjustments' she had to make with being a royal. 

Priyanka attended the Ladies Singles Final between Australian Ashleigh Barty - the eventual champion - and Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic at Wimbledon.

She wore an elegant billowing, marble-print gown which featured an asymmetric hem and a snakeskin print belt which nipped her in at the waist, and was seated in the Royal Box beside a friend a couple of rows behind Prince William and Kate - Meghan's brother-and-sister-in-law.  

During their controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year - which has been nominated for an Emmy award - Meghan said she didn't make Kate cry over bridesmaid dresses, arguing 'the reverse happened'.

'A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, pertaining to... the flower girl dresses, and it made me cry. And it really hurt my feelings,' she told the chat show host.

'There wasn't a confrontation and I don't think it's fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised, and I have forgiven her. What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn't do, but that happened to me.

'I'm not sharing that piece about Kate in any way to be disparaging to her.'

Kate has not commented publicly about the interview, but she and Prince William were said to have been 'deeply saddened' by it. 

In May 2016, Priyanka and Meghan enjoyed a 'girls day out' with producer Mubina Rattonsey, with Priyanka sharing a snap to Instagram

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Are Emmy Nominees

Oprah receives Emmy nomination for Harry and Meghan interview

Sky News Australia 14 July, 2021 - 05:12pm

Prince William can defend UK’s football team against racism, but not his own sister-in-law

Yahoo News 14 July, 2021 - 01:07pm

Last summer, the U.S. and much of the world experienced a racial reckoning as George Floyd’s murder reignited the Black Lives Matter movement sparking protests around the globe. Somehow the British Royal Family missed the memo. Royal reporters said Black Lives Matter was an American phenomenon, too “political” for the Royal Family to comment. This despite John Boyega rallying demonstrators in London, while another protest was held right on the royals’ doorstep at Windsor Castle.

Regardless, the royals decided to sit this one out, and with few exceptions, the public and the British media gave them a pass.

While William’s intervention was commendable, many wondered why that same energy had not compelled him to speak out in support of his biracial sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex, at any point over the last five years. Instead of universally denouncing racism in all forms, William’s gaze has been narrowly focused outward demanding reforms in sports and entertainment, yet unwilling to address the same issues within the corridors of the palace.

During Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, which was recently nominated for an Emmy, Prince Harry said that he and Meghan stepped back as working royals due to “lack of support and lack of understanding” from the Firm as they tried to contend with the UK press. William has made no less than four public statements on racism in football in the past two years, while Harry maintains the Sussexes’ pleas were met with “total silence, total neglect.”

Could a tweet from William have made a difference? A message similar to his impassioned plea for the footballers? Harry seemed to think so. Now, Twitter users have taken the liberty of drafting one for him.

It’s spinning the new guidelines into a PR campaign that disingenuously claims Meghan and Kate Middleton receive equivalent online abuse, while letting the lie that Meghan made Kate cry stand. William backed the football community’s social media boycott to protest racist online harassment this April, but when the Sussexes have been similarly targeted he chose not to close the comment section or hold his followers accountable. Does racism only count on match days?

In the docuseries The Me You Can’t See, Harry said his one regret in hindsight was not taking a stronger stance against the media coverage earlier. He released a statement condemning “the racial undertones” in the press just eight days after his relationship with Meghan was revealed. Contrast that with Prince William whom sources said at the time just did not “feel this was a big enough issue to make a fuss about.”

True to his word, William didn’t make a fuss. Not when Meghan received a racist anthrax threat three months after the couple’s engagement announcement in November 2017. Not a year later when a neo-Nazi terrorist group called for Prince Harry to be assassinated as a “race traitor” while Meghan was five months pregnant with their first child, Archie. The two people convicted on charges of encouraging terrorism in the summer of 2019 proved that online abuse could have real-world consequences.

Still, William did little to “create an environment where such abuse is not tolerated,” as he would later implore football fans to do. Often, the Royal Family and their staff did more to contribute to the abuse than alleviate it. In briefing the press on derogatory nicknames and office gossip, it was hard to separate the trolls in the palace from those online. Me-gain, Hurricane Meghan, the American, that bloody woman, and the degree wife were just a few of the nicknames.

If they were bold enough to put these in print, what do you think they called Meghan off the record?

Prince Harry told Oprah that he felt there were many times his family could have stepped in to offer public support before things reached the breaking point. Like in 2019, after William launched the Heads Up mental health campaign, a joint initiative of his two patronages, the FA and the Heads Together charity, he committed to “doing stuff on racism” because of its impact on mental health.

Unfortunately, that “stuff” did not include defending his 2-day-old nephew when a (former) BBC Radio host likened Archie to a chimpanzee. William claimed to be “fed up” and “bored” with racism, but the bigots were not. Like a Sussex family rite of passage, last month, Harry and Meghan’s daughter, Lili, was also introduced to racism online at just two days old. In response to her birth announcement, a (former) Sunday Telegraph columnist tweeted “What a missed opportunity! They could’ve called it Georgina Floydina!” Given a second chance to step up to the plate, William abstained again. Two strikes. Luckily, Harry and Meghan have said they aren’t planning to have more children, so William won’t get a third.

The Royal Family’s failure to publicly acknowledge the bias from the British press and address the allegations of racism in the Oprah interview will continue to haunt them. Prince William’s assurances that they “are very much not a racist family” were feeble at best and don’t stand up to the glare of scrutiny. Recent reporting from The Guardian found that the Queen’s household had a policy not to employ ethnic minorities as clerical staff as late as 1968, and to this day is exempt from laws against racial and sexual discrimination in the workplace. While it’s unclear when the policy was revoked, the latest Sovereign Grant report indicates that ethnic minorities comprise just 8.5% and 8% of Buckingham Palace and Clarence House’s (Prince Charles’s household) staffs, respectively.

Embarrassingly, after admonishing the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) last year for their lack of diversity, in his role as BAFTA president, Prince William refused to release diversity staff numbers for his royal household at Kensington Palace. Those bullying accusations against Meghan from Kensington Palace staff take on a different tenor when you consider that many of the staff may never have worked with a woman of color much less working for one. Too bad the Queen has tabled the idea of hiring a diversity tsar. There’s plenty of work to keep them busy.

When the England football team chose to take the knee throughout Euro 2020, they weren’t just highlighting racial inequality and discrimination on the field or social media but throughout British society. Too often Black people’s value as humans is synonymous with our entertainment value or the utility we offer to others.

When Harry and Meghan refused to be a human shield for the rest of the Royal Family, they became expendable. Likewise, when Marcus Rashford’s penalty kick clanked off the post, in some people’s eyes, he reverted from pandemic humanitarian and football star to just another “23-year-old, Black man from Withington and Wythenshawe, South Manchester.” But, as Indy race car driver Lewis Hamilton said, “Tolerance and respect for players of colour should not be conditional. Our humanity should not be conditional.”

He went on to add, “We must work towards a society that doesn’t require Black players to prove their value or place in society only through victory.”

Prince George’s Go-To Designer Opens Up About the Royal's Evolving Wardrobe

Yahoo Lifestyle 14 July, 2021 - 11:09am

The 7-year-old royal recently attended the UEFA Euro 2020 Championships at Wembley Stadium in London with his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton. For the occasion, George matched his father, who is President of the Football Association, in a navy suit, a blue shirt and a striped tie.

Following the event, People spoke with Sophie Mirman (the founder and creative director at Trotters), who has dressed the young royal throughout the years. During their chat, Mirman opened up about his look for the event and confirmed how his style will continue to change as he grows older.

“I thought he looked very dapper and regal," Mirman told the outlet. “He must have felt very cool and grown-up in his new jacket and tie—matching with his dad was actually very cute too. I think his parents are fantastic at judging what to wear and when. He is growing up fast and more of a young man than a little boy now."

The ensemble is a bit different from what Geoge has donned in the past. According to the royal family dress code, young boys aren’t supposed to wear pants—only shorts—before the age of eight. This is why we’ve seen George sporting outfits that show his legs for the majority of his life.

She continued, “I think it would have been rather strange to see William in a suit and tie and his son in shorts and a polo shirt—it was right for the occasion."

Looks like Prince George officially outgrown the shorts phase of his life.

Royal fans think Priyanka Chopra purposely ignored Kate Middleton and Prince William’s arrival at Wimbledon

The Independent 14 July, 2021 - 10:11am

On Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Wimbledon ahead of the Women’s Singles Final, with many members of the surrounding crowd cheering their arrival.

However, in one clip circulating online, rather than join in on the welcome, Chopra, who was seated two rows behind the Cambridges, appeared to take the opportunity to instead re-adjust her scarf, and then look away from the royal couple.

On social media, the alleged snub was met with mostly amused and supportive responses, with many hypothesising that the actress’s reaction had to do with her longtime friendship with the Duchess of Sussex.

“It’s Priyanka Chopra not applauding to the prince’s arrival for me,” one person tweeted along with the clip, which has since been viewed more than 49,000 times.

Another person wrote: “Priyanka said: ‘The only prince I acknowledge lives in Montecito,’” in reference to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s home in California.

“Priyanka is a true friend,” someone else tweeted.

While the meaning behind the Quantico star’s reaction to the royal couple’s arrival at Wimbledon is purely speculation, some royal fans suggested it was in direct response to the allegations shared by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about the royal family during their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the interview, Meghan and Harry alleged that they were subjected to racism during their time as senior members of the royal family, while the duchess also told Winfrey that her sister-in-law had made her cry in the days leading up to her royal wedding.

Others suggested that Chopra’s choice to focus on her scarf was in response to an unearthed 2018 video that showed Prince William appearing to intently fix his own scarf rather than speak to Meghan while the royal family left church at Sandringham on Christmas.

“Priyanka really played Prince William’s own trick on him. I am wheezing,” one person tweeted. “Meghan Markle is so lucky to have loyal friends, I love it here.”

Another person wrote: “Love the way she is also adjusting her scarf blanking out the people walking past. (I’ve seen a similar scene somewhere). We see you Priyanka.”

However, others pointed out that Chopra’s actions could have been misinterpreted, as she was not the only one in the box who did not applaud the duke and duchess, with someone else noting: “There was quite a few that didn’t applaud by the looks of it.”

Although it is not clear whether Chopra purposely chose to ignore the couple’s arrival, this wouldn’t be the first time she has publicly backed her longtime friend Meghan.

In 2017, the 38-year-old appeared on the Wendy Williams Show, where she was asked about her friendship with the former Suits star, only to correct Williams after the host referred to the Duchess of Sussex as “Prince Harry’s girlfriend”.

“Also Meghan Markle, actress, Suits, her achievements… just saying,” Chopra said at the time.
